Jessie J Crossing North America With 'R.O.S.E.' On Tour
Jessie J is crossing off a special first in 2018. On May 29 the GRAMMY-nominated singer/songwriter announced her first-ever North American tour will commence Oct. 3 in Vancouver.
The announcement follows the staggered release of Realisations, Obsessions, Sex, and Empowerment, the four EPs she began releasing daily on May 22 that taken together constitute R.O.S.E., her atypically formatted fourth studio album.
"The success of R.O.S.E. is blowing my mind," Jessie J wrote in a Twitter thread on May 25. "I lost my way in music that wasn't me. I broke down, to break open. I made the album of my dreams and followed my heart. I wrote, I sang and I made music that is truly ME! I put out this record in a way no one has ever done… I'm always trying to push the norm and challenge myself."
The singles releases from R.O.S.E. began a little over six months ago with "Think About That" from Realisations, "Not My Ex" and "Real Deal" from Obsessions, and now, most recently, "Queen" from Sex. As a songwriter deeply concerned with her art, her fresh album and first foray into touring across North America promise a new-and-improved dose of what only Jessie J can deliver.
